Hello,The hard drive on my windowsXP PC is full. I have an external drive and want to move my .pst file to the external drive.
I followed the instructions is a thread on a thread I found on this site. So, so far so good. I have created a ForcePSTPath folder
but this is where I am stuck. The next instruction is to move the data from the Outlook file to the new forcepstpath folder.
I am just not sure how to do that.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: OP here. I think I'm getting closer but I could still use some help. I figured out that I was still in REGEDIT so I got out of that, went to Start menu> Search>Outlook. 96 files found but I am not sure what I need to do to point Outlook toward (transfer the data to) the ForcePSTPath on my external hard drive.

Again, any assistance is greatly appreciated.
